Yes, you read the dimensions correctly, this photo is about 5000px by 2400px.
I hear you protesting, "But Para, you only have a cheep little 3 mega-pixel camera! How could you get a photo with eleven million pixels in it!" ... Well yes it's true I have a sad mega-pixel limit, but I also have Photoshop. And with some tender love 'n care, you can stitch up images and get a more or less seamless result. Like this one photo. There are some minor glitches but at this size it does not matter.
And now your whining, "But why would anyone need stock this huge?" Well it's simple, the higher the resolution the more options you have editing the stock. Makes better printable reference, has more options scaling in relation to other stock, has more over all details, and plenty other benefits. The better the resolution, the more options; the more options, the better the stock.
And now you go on to ask "Well why should I download a 2mb photo?" If you like to work with big stock, or really like looking at the details in photos like this; get it. But this is not meant for causal browsing, it is meant for hardcore stock use. If you want something smaller check out the related below, stock that is like this but is mostly half the size.

now this is what I call STOCK!! I've been looking for ages for some good quality stock to use in my poster-size photo manipulation prints. Sadly I have no dA Print Account, but I do have a Wal-Mart!! lol
WOW, this is absolutely incredible! with the dark side of the mountain on the right and thelight sky on the left it seems to pulle you into the picture in that direction, excellent use of light in dark in nature!
Wow! that is beyond fantastic, i know of no word that can adequately descibe how fantastic a shot that truely is, so as u may have guessed... i LOVE this, and incredible work stitching it up, i didnt have a clue it was done like that, im not even gonna bother looking for the edges, even though i believe it wont negate the awesomeness of such a shot
eh. i want a 11megapixel cam. this is awesome. i dont know whether i will use this or not, but im just overwhelmed by the size of this on my 14"notebook. it was also cool to look at it in opera with the 20% zoom.
